THE    SUN,    GKAW    FORKS,    B.C.  mm  French Turcos Are Brave and Efficient  Fighters  There are many still living who  can recall the time when the common by-word was the report of a  general in the Civil War of the United  States, "The colored troops fought  bravely," There had been much discussion about the wisdom of placing  arms in the hands of the negroes,  and some doubt as to their ability to  stand fire.  Great Britain has a West Indian  regiment- of black-men, whose bravery.has never been open to suspicion.  France has several battalions of African lighters, outside altogether of  the Spahis  ot Algiers.  Turcos the Germans ,eall them, mid  well do they know the lighting ability  of tliesc blacks. The dread of them  has been driven home by their awful  and perfectly fearless bayonet  charges, before which German training has not the slightest chance.  In fact tho Gorman war office practically decided that the day of tho  bayonet and the sabre had gone for  ever, that future wars would be decided by strategy, enveloping movements, and artillery or rifle firing.  To have a horde of big blacks carrying long bayonets or cutlasses come  trampling down their theories and  their regiments was disconcerting to  say #ie least of it.  Tho scheme to raise a 'black army  in .French West Africa was first  launched in 1909 by General Mangin,  then a lieutenant-colonel. It aroused  much enthusiasm, but the best military opinion decided not to adopt the  scheme in its entirety until it had been  proved practical on a small scale.  . The chamber of deputies, in. 1910,  passed an act authorizing the formation of two Senegalese battalions  which was a great success.' Under  Commandant Monveaux they disembarked at Onin from Senegal on May  13, 1910, and were soon absorbed in  tho scheme of Moroccan occupation.  France immediately after that date  was too much occupied with the work  of administering and pacifying that  huge area to have time to continue  tho experiment, and thus it was not  until .1913 that the opportunity arrived to form a second battalion.  The work done by both these units  has in the eyes of experts more than  justified their formation.  The Senegalese soldier has ...the  great virtue of adaptability. He is  not exacting. At night he sleeps on  the. ground rolled in his blanket. In  camp he builds his own shelter, and  practically helps lielmself. What are  luxuries to him are sheer nec?ssitios  to ��������� the average citizen. As for'his  trade of arms, \i is his own natural  bent finding an outlet. A natural  athlete, he takes to the work of soldiering as a fish does to.water. Drill  loses its irksome nature in its mere  novelty. Discipline is for- him but  the encouragement to do his best,  and a very fine best he makes it. As  a marksman, he may not be amongst  the sharp'O.inntpi'c iinf. in tire control  "he nas few equals, and after all, little else is demanded by battlefield  conditions today.  To a certain extent these Senegalese battalions In peace time have  become schools of  SUFFERS "FOR   HIS   PATRIOTISM"      ESPIONAGE   COVERED   FRANCE  Alsatian  Farmer  Punished  Because a  Flag  Was   Hoisted on   His  House '  The court martial sitting at Coliner  in Alsace sentenced a farmer named  Demange to ten years' hard labor, on  a charge of showing sympathy with  the enemy. Demange lives in the district which was occupied ' by -the  French troops at the beginning of the  ���������war. Subsequently they withdrew to  French territory and tho German  authorities took drastic measures to  punish the Alsatians of French extraction who demonstrated their pleasure  at the French'victories. The charge  against Demange was that he. had  hoisted tho French flag on his farm  house when the French troops occupied that region. Demange denied  this most strenuously, declaring that  he merely placed a white flag on the  roof to indicate that he was a non-  combatant, and that no soldiers o"  either side were on his farm. The  court martial rejected his defence and  sentenced blm to ten years' hard  labor.  Their specialty is endurance marching and they have put up some remarkable records under the most adverse conditions. In the fighting line  they are invaluable and have by their  fearlessness of death, encouraged  their French comrades to go on fighting with greater vigor.  Britain has made of the Indian  troops the finest soldiers in the world,  who are now being put to the real  test in Europe. That France will  extend her scheme of raising troops  in her colonies is sure to follow the  success of tiie experiment in Senegal.  ��������� Two years ago, General Von Bern-  hardi, the German prophet of the'  present war, wrote:  If the French succeed in making a  large African army available for.a  European theatr.e (of war), the estimate of the French army - as compared to ours will be quite different.  The  Turcos   are  the  answer.  Business as Usual?  One of the most popular slogans  arising out of the European war, at  least in the commercial and industrial  ���������sphere, is that of "Business as Usual."'  ��������� Just why the interests concerned  have appropriated the phrase is not 'at  all clear, neither is it reassuring, for  may it not actually be the outcome  of a desire to simply put-a "face" on  conditions that more or less demand  it. In one sense, /'Business as Usual,"  and in another sense it is otherwise,  and our relative position to one or the  other determines whether we are in  earnest'or bluffing. j  In prosperous or boom times little  effort, comparatively speaking, may be  expended to keep the factory wheels  and a myriad of employees' taxed to  to the limit to serve the demand, and  this condition may be to a large extent existent in quite normal times.  Is it not possible, however,N^Ahat in  spite of the tremendous" upsetting  events of the past two months, we still  are disposed to '���������take" what is offering  and let what needs ��������� getting^ go by; in  other words, we are conducting our  business as "usual" and there is no  bluff about it.  Having said this much on behalf of  what is undoubtedly a minority of  commercial ' and industrial enterprises, it may be safely inferred  that the majority are quite insincere  in the use of the "Business as 'Usual"  slogan. They have in many cases  withdrawn themselves completely,  from the public eye,'and what is perhaps more condemnatory still, \ because absolutely without reason or  justification, ��������� they, have decided that  the particular sphere to which they  had the privilege of .catering needs  meantime no attention.  The great trouble today is that we  are all too'pessimistic. We act, however otherwise we may talk and write,  as though the European Anti-Burglar  Alliance was unequal to the task it  }io������ oot-itoolf. ��������� Iji gracpiug. hold <j������ tho  bee, .we seem somehow to get the sting  instead of the honey. In trying to  pluck the rose, our portion seems to  be the thorn, and our upward look  sees nothing but the dark cloud, at  physical culture, j though the silver lining is there.  Italy and Great Britain  Italy is invaded by Germans, who  assert that Germany will issue victorious, and that her commercial and industrial activity will not be arrested.  We are inundated with German letters, telegrams, newspapers, and private communications from famous  German commercial houses, all asserting that Germany will win, and that  Italy should keep neutral, to be on the  winning side.  We are not of that opinion. We cannot lose sight of England. Germany  i knows that England represents her  'great final danger, hence the bitterness with which she speaks of England in all the abovo communications.  England is not playing a game of  bluff. She is not impotent b.v land, as  Germany says, and' may give Germany a mortal blow by sea. The Avar  may possibly end in a Titantic duel  between England and Germany. In  this case England will go through  with the struggle calmly and grimly,  smiling at difficulties and disregard-  trig losses.���������Le fjecolo, Milan.  the  Passerby���������What's the fuss in  school yard,  boy?"

Business, notwithstanding, is as  "Usual," by which is meant"that there  is business to' be got, but the amount  of our share will be entirely dependant on the enterprise and energy wo  put forth to get it. This is neither a  normal time nor yet is it a boom time,  to the latter of which unfortunately  we have become too accustomed. It is  an abnormal time and the very antithesis of a boom period. Conditions  are just such" now that our industries  should have every "searchlight of pub-:  licity focussed on the path to their  factory doors, but in how few in~  stances is this being.given effect to.  It is insufficiently realized, and generally not at all, that the peculiar circumstances in which we find ourselves  make it necessary for us to go after  business, more insistently and more  strenuously than ever before; Our  own and the needs of others still demand supply, and the wherewithal to  produce and to purchase is just every  whit as available as formerly if we go  about our business affairs in the proper spirit and in a determined -manner.  Declarations otherwise, nowithsland-  ing, we have not got beyond the panic  stage.' Canadian business enterprise  is simply seething with, pessimism,  born of a craven fear that the European Burglar may after all prevail.  The adoption of such an attitude is  contrary to both right and reason. No  subject of the British empire, if he he  truly loyal, should have the slightest  misgiving as,to tiie ultimate outcome  of this European struggle, for he who  assumes the role of a coward is perchance not far removed from being a  traitor. Again, and on the highest  plane of approach to the ultimate issue, none of us worthy the name of  Christian dare be pessimistic.  Let. us get rid of all this pretence  therefore of "Business as Usual," and  turn it into reality by getting after and  embracing the opportunities everywhere offering. Let us get into the  firing line and throw out again our  scouting forces, and where in normal  times these consisted of a few scattered units, let us be strategic enough  to see that such means are multiplied  and increased in effectiveness.���������Canadian Machinery.  Spies Overlooking Nothing, and Whole  Country Thoroughly  Organized  The discrimination with which the  German distributed war fines and requisitions in the towns, they occupied  in. Belgium and Northern France and  the precision with which they chose  the most solvent citizens as hostages  has been a surprise, but when the details become known the facts carried  their explanation with them. For instance, the first detachment of Uhlans  that entered tho city of Lille was  guided by a man, who had left his  job as superintendent of an important factory in the city to rejoin his  regiment.  At Soissons, when objections were  raised to the exacting proportions of  the requisitions, the commanding officer called his aide who turned out  to be a well known business man of  the town who, of course, know its  resources thoroughly. "You see,"  said the officer pointing to the aide,  "there's no use resisting, we arc posted by some one who knows."  ' Similar instances were reported  from Belgium, showing that every  inch of the ground had been carefully  studied; the ready money is ever estimated; every suitable horse and  every, ton of hay located, and the  plans of every bridge drawn up. - In  France their statistics went so far as  to show how many bottles of _ wine  might be exacted in  each  locality.  Bismarck ..knew two years before-  ���������the war of 1870 all that was going on  in Franco and among his informers  was no less a personage than the present German- general, von Moltke. It  is doubtful, however, whether his m:  formation was as complete as that  possessed by the German general  staff today. Probably no army ever  had the benefit of so far reaching a.  system of secret service as that  which the Germans have developed  in France.'  ��������� There is nothing particularly new  in the stralegems.��������� employed by the  German spies, but the patience and  hardihood with which they have  worked are worthy of note. The reports of the siege of Maubeuge have'  demonstrated how the great German  mortars could immediately be put in-,  to action on arrival, thanks to macadam foundations prepared months,  if not years, in advance, in the yards'  of a German factory. The land on  which this factory was built was purchased by the Krupps through a' go-  between. The sale caused some talk  at the time, but the matter was for-;  gotten until the fall of Maubeuge recalled, the circumstances. -  As iong ago as 1877 the topography  of the region in which the battle of  the Marne wras fought was carefully  studied by a company of spies who  presented themselves even at the  mayor's office and-at the prefectures  as engineers studying the ground fo3'  new railway .lines. / They got all the  information they wanted. When it  was discovered that the projected  railway lines were myths it was'too  late.  They, employed suppoocd artists to  sketch fortifications and-supposed  fishermen to take the depths of  streams. There is probably not a,fort  in France that the Germans-do not  knew as well as/the French, and it is  INVENTOR'S   NEW   ACHIEVEMENT  'Charles H.

Mr. Barnes, though  still a young man, has been connected  with the Remington Arms-Union Metallic Cartridge Company for fifteen'  years, and in that-time has contributed  much to the mechanical excellence of  Remington  rifles and shot-guns,  His latest achievement, the Remington autoloading .22 calibre rifle, which  has been three years in the making, is  the result of diligent study and complete mastery of the most difficult  problems involved in the manufacture  of modern firearms. Willi this rifle  sixteen shots can be fired without reloading; all the shooter lias to do is  to press the trigger for each shot. It  is impossible to "jam" the rifle, no'  matter in what- position it may be  held or, how fast the trigger may be  pulled. "This arm is sure to give a new  impetus to the rapidly increasing interest in .22 calibre shooting, because  it combines great rapidity of accurate  fire with simplicity of mechanism, perfect, 'balance, unique safety rdevices  and handsome appearance, besides  other features which sportsmen value.  The take-down system is so simple.-no  "tools of. any kind being required. Mr.  Barnes' already high rank in (he'field  of invention is, on'account of this remarkable new rifle, receiving fresh  recognition from the shooting public.  Rumors  are  in   circulation'^  .'-  '   -." *���������  that we are unable to  supply^  orders owing to war demaricU-  This statement is  absolutely^;  incorrect.    We are filling our?.  orders as usual.  Insist on get-f  ting what you ask for���������Clark's.^;  a  Better Feelinf in the Trade.  That the feeling in the trade is'-very  much more -assured than it was four  weeks ago is the opinion of Mr. R. D.  .Fairbairn, president of R, D. Fair-  bairn Company, Limited, manufacturers of ladies' outer garments and  fancy dry'goods.  Mr. Fairbairn believes the manufacturers of Canada as a class have  largely in their own hands the matter  of whether there will. be good business for Canadian factories. "The  business is there," said. Mr. Fairbairn,  "if the manufacturers will only get,  after it. "The depression in trade  which was in force beforo the war  has certainly not increased since the  war began; and, on the whole, manufacturers can be assured of good  business, provided they do two things  ���������advertise and push the .selling department to the limit." s"  Referring to his own business^Mr.  Fairbairii said he did not anticipate  cutting down one hour of labor or  dismissing one employee or reducing  wages as a resuk of the war. On the  contrary, the present staff of upwards  of 200 is being slightly increased. This  continued activity is not due to any  removal of competition, but to - the  continued demand 'throughout the  country.   "  "We are absolutely confident," said  Mr. Fairbairn, "that with the business  to be done at home there is absolutely no excuse for any manufacturer  of garments curtailing bis output.

The representations made, show  that.German houses;-who have their  head offices in Berlin and branch- offices at different ports in Great Britain; are, through their'agents in Canada, 'circularizing business houses in  Canada, offering to attend to the ship  ments which they make from Great  Britain at a charge for shipping ancJ  looking after the consignments veyy  much below what is a reasonable and1,  fair figure for such services. These  German houses are offering-to males  contracts for a year or more wi'tip  Canadian houses on these low rates.  The council, while believing .thai,  Canadians generally patriotic enougi?,  to refrain from giving their custom .te  German houses, fear that the-..&i?"  cumstance that the parties -'soliciting:  this business represent -��������� Germac.  houses, is not always made known 'sale',  hence it is desirable that enq'uipy  should be made by all Canadian Arnicas to the nationality of firms ropzs-  sented by parties soliciting their slijtp ���������  ping and forwarding business.

It was recently asserted that the  German foreign office possessed a  complete list of all the inhabitants of  France whose fortunes made them  eligible hostages, as well as a black  list of all those who had made, themselves obnoxious by their avowed hostility to Germany.  xMost of the men -employed in the  German secret service , speak good  English and frequently pass, themselves off as Americans. One tried it  "the-.other day, after having penetrated to General Maourys headquarters,  but his papers were not satisfactory  and he was shot forthwith.  It was only when the general mobilization was ordered that the French  began to realize to what extent their  country had been organized'by the  enemy... Then it was remarked that at  the end or near the end of many  bridges having strategic importance,  there was  a  German factory.  Maubeuge shows how close theysgot  to the forts, and the Landernan Powder mill is a still graver example of  their   audacity.     This   factory   while  this year must be circulated. The  general trade of the country, .must of  necessity not only hold Us own, but  advance."  A   Brave   Drummer   Boy  A drummer boy of 17 years, .belonging to the Cheshire regiment, is  among the wounded now in hospital in  London. When seen by a reporter,  he was swinging on a "rocking horse  whilst conversing with an artilleryman on shrapnel, maxims an'ddum-.  dums.  "I went out at the beginning of the  war," said the boy, "and was in the  trenches at Mons. S,'  "I. was sent for_a box of ammunition, and was "carrying it on my  shoulder, when a shrapnel splinter-  struck the box and knocked me down;*  '-'All our fellows thought i was dead,  and one. or two came riming to me;  but I got up all right and went back  to the trenches. I had a pop at 'em  with a rifle," he added gleefully. "Ever  seen a shrapnel drop?" turning to the  artilleryman.  "Too many," answered the soldier,  "One dropped by me," said the  furnishing gun cotton to the govern-J drummer boy. "It stood up on. end  mentj was in the hands of Germans, for a second or two, and I didn't seem  and it has even been declared that the  to  realize  it was  a shell.    Then it  power that blew up the battleships  Iona and Liberte was made of defective gun cotton furnished vby this  mill.  It is known that more than 3,000  German spies were arrested in Belgium, most of whom have been tried  by court martial. How many have  been arrested in France no one knows,  the government having succeeded in  throwing an impenetrable veil over all  these proceedings.  The war is hitting non-combatants  very hard. It cost Switzerland $13,-  000,000 to mobilize, and to keep the  army on a war footing means another  $8,400,000 a month. And their annual  budget is barely $22,500,000.

The Future is Ours  Confidence begets confidence, if we  pull a long face it is likely to stay  long permanently. If we falter at a  temporary check we are almost certain to lose heart and quit when  things get a little clc^se. Canada has  no reason to quit. In fact, the Dominion is in a patricularly favorable position at this time to profit by the insanity and destructiveness of the  Great Kuropean powers. The future  is ours to a certainty, and the present  is exactly what we make it. Let us  make it as bright and hopeful and  cheerful as possible. It is not only  our duty, but it is good business, and  on analysis will be seen to be wholly  justified.���������Ottawa Citizen.

Flogging in the German Navy  ' 111 the month of August the German  cruiser Magdeburg ran ashore in the  Baltic and fell into tho hands of, the  Russians.. When her new owners.-  searched her a singular discovery was  made! *��������� "It is'thus described in a-dis-  .patch from Petrograd, dated Sept. 3,  appearing in the ' London" Morning  Post:' ���������   v '  "Considerable sensation has been  created:here by discoveries made on  board the German cruiser Magdeburg,  that was blown up after going ashore  at the' entrance of the Finnish Gulf.  Among the articles lying on the decks  on the" after-part, .. where boats .were  lowered for the' majority of the crew  to escape on .the accompanying destroyers, were several specimens of  the old 'cat of nine tails.' When the  Russian authorities went through the  ship they found one of these instruments in every officer's cabin, and all  bore signs of long, and, in some cases,  of hard usage. - .-  "These curious attributes of naval  rank are all alike in having a handle  eight inches-long, with a loop���������for the  wrist.. From the other end depend  nine leather.thongs of formidable appearance,' ne'arly as thick as the little  finger, and twelve -inches long. In  each case the officer's name was inscribed on the. handle. These 'cats'  were handed round for press inspection last night at the Naval General  Staff headquarters. Those left lying  on deck ~ahd apparently played their  habitual part in speeding up the German ';.'Jackie's': during the nervous operation of lowering the boats to escape from the cruiser lying comfortable aground... It is considered here  'that the little instruments tell a most  interesting! and/significant story of  the/procedure on Doard the ships of  the Royal German Navy, and provide  yet -'another illustration of the systematic savagery of that Germanism  dating.from 1870, which has replaced the good old culture of an earlier  and better Germany.  "The public are also to have an opportunity of inspecting these latest-  discovered instruments of Prussian  culture."

The  samples -sent to the laboratory will be  tested to discover the exact type of  article which can best be manufactured- from them, whether common brick,  fire brick, tile, sewer pipe, porcelain  ware, earthenware or china. Until recently most of th&, clays found in Alberta have been'" tested in the east.  The presence,-in the centre of the province; . of a fully equipped laboratory  of this kind, should greatly help to  develop an industry, the materials for which lie so ready to  hand. -The Geological Survey have begun an examination of the clays found  in the western provinces and it is intended that the laboratories will make  a more systematic study of the clay  resources within the province.  German and British Cruisers  Now that the Heligoland light has  seen British and Gorman cruisers exchanging broadsides,vnaval journals  are discussing the relative merits of  the two national types. For years  Germany-has been building what the  German admiral staff terms "small  cruisers." These vessels can be distinguished by their bearing the names  of towns���������Leipsic, Karlsruhe, l<]mden,  Madgeburg, etc.���������and are all of small  or moderate size, great speed and  light armament. British* cruisers are  not standardized in the same way;  but of lato years tho admiralty' has  been building a number of very fast  ships, some larger, some smaller, than  the German "small cruiser," but all  more .heavily armed. .-'The German  ships' are all armed /with the 4.1 inch  gun, a weapon which.fires a 35-pound  shell, and probably can be discharged  with great rapidity. _The British 4-  inch gun is a lighter weapon;-the earlier "marks" fire a 25-pounds shell, and  the projectile from the later patterns  weighs 31 pounds. The British cruisers, however, usually' mount 6-inch  guns as well as the 4-inch weapons,  and the 6-inch shell woigns 100  pounds.  Everybody  feels better when Liver and  Bowels arc normal.

How  Von   Buelow   Fell  One of the special correspondents  at Ostend has' learned the exact circumstances surrounding the'death'of  General" von Buelow at the battle of  Haelen.  At this battle a lad of 18, standing alone in a mass of dead, saw  about 800 yards distant an officer  studying a map. The youngster  crawled quickly amongst the corpses  of his comrades until he was within  400 yards of the officer. Then he took  careful aim and fired. The officer  fell dead. Rushing up to the body  the Belgian discovered to his surprise that'it was that of General von  'Buelow.  Taking off the General's boots and  donning his uniform he managed to  pass through the' German lines. As  he approached the."Belgian army he  discarded the German helmet and put  on his own cap in fear that he might  be shot. *  -Subsequent examination of von  Buelow's garment led to German  notes to tho value of 135,000, francs  being found in the vest pocket, and  this money King Albert has turned  over to the Red Cross organization.  In his jacket was a secret pockel  containing memoranda full of interesting details about the battlefield  and the future intentions of the Germans. .���������  On hearing of the lad's brave deed  King Albert, after presenting him  with the dead general's horse and  pocketbook,  gave him  on    the  spot  the Order cf the-Knight of Leopold.  > -      _���������____���������-'.

As he was fighting I saw him go  to a badly wounded corporal who Was-  shouting to be taken out of the .way  of the line. The wounded sergeant-  bound up the other man's wound, and  then sat him on his own horse and  sent him back out of the way.

Order at Once  Th.  ofks  /  THE PEACE CENTENARY AND  THE WAR  Should, the Hundred Years of  Peace celebration-^ between Canada  and the United Stases. and between  Great Britain and the United States  be abandoned because of the war?  This question has-evoked a t considerable amount of discussion hothin  Canada and the United States In  a circular just issued by the Canadian Peace Centenary association  the answer is given^ The association took the wise course of consulting the executives of the British and  American organizations and of requesting the opinion of a large number of leading men throughout Canada  " At a'meeting held in Ottawa on  August 19 last the following resolution was passed": . - ��������� .  "That the association desires to  record its opinion that, notwithstanding the present war 'there  should be an appropriate celebration  commemorative of the hundred  years of peace between the British  empire and the United States. , The  association recognizes, however,- that  having regard for the��������� very .-serious  nature of events arising out of the  war, it would be inexpedient to attempt" att present 'definite arrangements as to time and place.for a  celebratiqp'of an international <;har  acter. With this exception it' is  decided that the association proceed  with'its educational and oftier wo,rk  as far as may be possible."  At this meeting letters were read  from - Sir Robert Borden' and Sir  Wilfrid Laurier. One sentenee of  Sir Robert Borden's letter .expresses  his view clearly: "The .project .of  marking in an appropriate manner  the completion oi a century of peace  between the British empire and the  United-States ought surely to command the widest sympathy. That  terrible storm of war now'sweeping  Europe, the ravages of which reach  even to-the shores, of this- continent,  brings into clearer' relief the more  excellent way which these'two powers have found and followed."' Sir  Wiltried'Laurier is also equally emphatic: "I am certainly of theopiu-  ion. that the celebration shouid not  be interfered with by the war. On  the contrary, at this moment more  than ever, it would be advisable  that the American people and the  Canadian should give an example  to the world of their unflinching  and determined desire to maintain  peace."  The chairman of the American  commission wrote after conferring  with his colleagues.  "If ihere was reason for holding  a celebration over the historic fact  of a century of peace, there is doubly the reason for celebrating peace in  the light of the awful war in which  Europe is engaged."  The New^York Times asked editorially, "Why should the plan to  celebrate a century of peace between  the two branches of the English-  speaking race be deferred on account  of the war in Europe, in which one  of them is involved?" And contiuued,  "It will be all the more appropriate  that we and onr, British brothers  shall call the attention of the world  to the wonderful benefits that have  followed the long uninterrupted  reign of peace between us, and so  far as may be, to its causes."

Taylor,  ot the 2nd Worcestershire Regiment,  who was wounded by shrapnel during  the fighting at Mons, and has now returned to hlsliome at Rowley Regis."���������  Upon reaching Mons, he says, they  received the order to sit down to clin-  ' ner, but before the meal could be  served shells began to fall among  tliemlike hailstones. They "were then  told to line the trenches. The German shell firing was deadly, and the,  regiment was cut up, while the King's  Own Scottish Borderers, who were on  tho left began the engagement 1,700  strong and ended with about 250. As  to the shooting of the German Infantry Taylor said tney could not hit a  haystack in an entry. Not more than  one bullet in every hundred found its  mark. The British soldiers had the'  better oC the .fight until their ranks  were thinned.   "  ' Taylor was taken, to a church which  had been transformed into a hospital,  but the building/was shelled to such  an extent by the Germans that the  wounded had to be removed.

The British board .of agriculture has  ���������advised the householders of Great  Britain to utilize every foot of spare  land in the planting of gardens for  next year, to supply as far as possible  their ovvn garden porduce. In this way  they can assist in'relieving any shortage which may develop on account of  war conditions.  This suggestion is of equal importance to Canadians. Attached to' nearly  every home are pieces pf ground  which at present are merely waste  land. With little effort these may be  converted into productive gardens. It  requires very little space for a garden that, with ordinary care,: will supply an average household with vegetables. By cultivating the available  ground many Canadian >families can  ���������reduce their living expenses, and, at  the same time, secure vegetables  which are absolutely fresh.

Germany's .Gosper of Culture  What- was   that  German    culture?  What "was its object and its practice?  Its 'first object.se^emed to be���������inspired,  he supposed, by the forty universities  ���������to destroy all other universities, and  they had  begun by    destroying    the  University of Louvain, which by solemn treaty  they- ;had  sAvora to preserve.    The second object,   was    to  drown Belgium,- which they had guaranteed .by a solemn act, in blood and  in fire, and .the third was to destroy,  all historical monuments within their  reach,  and  to do  what the  greatest  barbarians 'in  history  would     never  even  have    contemplated.    Louvain,  Malines, Senlisj all attested the benefits b������ German culture, and that day  we had the final report that one of  the ' most    glorious   . monuments of  Christian  architecturA.in the- world,  .one of the most historical antetypes  of our Westminster-Abbey, the cathedral..of  Rheims,  had -been    wantonly  bombarded and destroyed by the apostles of' German culture.  Can you conceive a more deliberate  and public repudiation of Christianity from that state which is constantly arrogating to itself the special pro-  tection of the Almighty than such a  -wicked destruction of a great Christian temple, destroying at .the same  time some wounded���������some German  wounded���������-even" seme Sisters of Charity who had taken refuge under that  sacred roof? Well, that is German  culture.^ That is what is to be spread  at the -point of the1 bayonet by the  Prussian armies all over the world,  and that German culture is one of the  thiugs that we are determined to resist.���������Speech by Lord Rosebery.

When he broke;the borders of a peaceful neighbor, how could hfi realize that  he touched an alarm bringing remotest  continents to the rescue?   How could  the "intoxication    of    self-will foresee  that    Himalaya    and    Hindu' Koosh  would march to the avenging 'of the  Ardennes?  .It is impossible to find words that  can express the mighty significance  of this gathering of the nations to punish wrong, and to support tne strong  arm uplifted in- its defiance.

Su",    >'  Entente Cordiale  The following narrative shows Ihe  comradeship   of     the     British     and  French troops in the trenches:  "A regiment lay in trenches under  a mixed rifle and shrapnel fire. Suddenly     a' couple  of privates  noticed  thatthe French interpreter was awkwardly placed  at a spot where the  trench  was  not wide  enough  to  enable him to make proper use of his  rifle. ���������'......���������' j-  '" "The . Frenchman isn't comfortable,' said one,- and both left the  trench., spade in hand, knowing well  that .they were serving the enemy as  targets, dug-out. the trench in "front  of their French comrade, and returned with unbroken calm to their own  places and their rifles.  ���������'Our British Allies have, as every  one knows; two main pre-occupations  ���������to be able to shave and to have tea.  ;!S'o danger deters them from their allegiance to the razor and the teapot.  At   ,��������� in  the   department   of   the  Nord, I heard a British officer of high  rank declare with a delicious calm  between :.-two attacks on: the town:  'Gentlemen, it was nothing." Let's go  and -have tea.' Meanwhile his men  took advantage of'the brief respite to  crowd round the pump, where, producing soap and strop, they proceeded to  shave with little bits of broken glass  serving as mirrors." ���������  ...  '  The writer was profoundly amused by the new British war-cry, "Are  we down-hearted?" and the resounding "No:" which follows it. After a  volley has swept the ranks there is  always some joker to shout the ques-  ton. and all the rest roar out in the  midst of geueral laughter, "No."  Miller's Worm Powders not only  make the infantile system untenable  for "Worms, but by their action on the  stomach, liver and bowels they correct  such troubles as lack of appetite, biliousness and other internal disorders  that the.worms create. Children thrive  upon them and no matter what condition their worm-infested stomachs  may be in, they will show improvement as soon as the treatment begins.  W. N.

She is weaker and more  frail than her companions who have  rich, red blood*.    She is more easily  fatigued in body and mind, and w;ork  of any kind exhausts her. In time her  health    breaks    down.    She becomes  pale, looks- worn- out, is languid, irritable and nervous.    Her heart palpitates violently at the least exertion,  and  she  falls  behind  other  girls, in  looks, health, and a capacity for enjoying life.   Abundant .rich, red blood  is.the only thing that"can restore good  health to the many thousands of stick  girls.    This rich, red. blood can:only  be  obtained  through  the .use of Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills: They have given  thousands    of . weak,    white-faced,  bloodless     girls,     robust,     vigorous  health   and  high   spirits.   Here   is. a  bit .of proof. Miss .Olive Gauvreau, St.  Jerome, Que., says: "I have reason-to  be more    than   grateful to Dr. .Williams' Pink Pills, for they restored me  to health after more' than one doctor  and many medicines had^ failed.  , I  suffered as so many girls do from anaemia.   I was all run down, tortured  with headaches, could not stand any  exertion, and had no appetite, though  of course I had to force myself to eat.  I was in this condition for nearly two  years,   and  although  doctoring    continually, seemed to be steadily growing-worse, and I was very much discouraged  and  despondent.  Finally a  friend urged me to try Dr. Williams'  .Pinli^Pills    and    I    discontinued all  other Tuedicines and    did so.   In the  course of a few weeks there was no  room to doubt that I had at last found  the right medicine.    My appetite returned, the headaches began to come  less frequently, and color was returning to my face. The continued vse of  tlio Pills for a little longer fully restored  my  health,  and I  have  since  been as healthy and active as anyone  could wish.   I cannot too strongly.recommend Dr. Williams' Pink Pills to  other weak and ailing' girls*  You . can get these Pills through  your medicine dealer or by mail post  paid at 50 cents a box or six boxes  The Planting and Care of Shade Trees  A bulletin entitled "Tho Planting  and Care,of Shade Trees," has just  been issued by tlio Central Experimental Farm.

I2SB  NO PRICE TOO  HIGH FOR DEFENCE OF LIBERTIES  Rain Follows Big Battles  Premier Asquith Says the Task is no Light One that Britain Has  Undertaken, but that it must be Fully Accomplished,  and the German Domination Ended  At a groat meeting    in Edinburgh  " to encourage recruiting,  Mr. Asquith  madejlthe chief .address.    _Ie said in  part:  A fortnight -ago today, in the  Guildhall of the city of London, I  endeavored to' present to the nation  and to the world tho reasons which  have compelled us, the people of all  others which has tho greatest interest in the maintenance of peace, to  engage in the hazards and the horrors of war. I do not' wish to repeat  .tonight in any -detail what I then  said.. The war'has arisen immediately and ostensibly, as everyone knows,  out of a dispute- between Austria and  Servia in which we in this country  had no direct concern. The diplomatic history of those critical weeks  - ���������the last fortnight in July and the  first few. days of August���������is now  accessible to all the-'world. If has  been supplemented during the last  few days by the admirable and ex-1  haustivf despatch of our late ambassador at Vienna, Sir Maurice de Bun-  sen, a despatch which, I trust, everybody, will read. And no one who reads  It can doubt that, largely through  the efforts of my right lion, friend  and colleague, Sir Edward Grey, the  conditions of a peaceful'settlement of  tho actual controversy were already  within sight when, on the 31st of  y Jul}', Germany by her own deliberate  act, jmade war a certainty. The facts  are incontrovertible.  They are not sought to be controverted, except, indeed, by the invention and circulation of such wanton  falsehoods as  that France  was  contemplating and even commencing the  violation ot   Belgian   territory   as   a  first step  on  heiv road  to  Germany.  .Tiie result is that we are at war, and  we- are  at war���������as  I have  already  shown elsewhere,    and    as  I repeat  'here    tonight���������we    are  at    war  for  three reasons.    In the first place '.0  vindicate  the  sanctity of  treaty  ob-  ." ligations and of what, is properly cali-  .ed the public- law of Europe;  in the  second place, to assert and J;o enforce  .   the independence of free states, relatively small and weak, against the en-  "-   croachments' and- the violence of the  strong, and in the-third place-to withstand, as we believe in the.best interests not only of our own empire but of  civilization  at  larjge,    the    arrogant  claim of a single power to dominate  the development, of the destinies    of  Europe  (Cheers).-  ��������� Since I last spoke some faint attempts have been made in Germany  to dispute the accuracy and the sincerity of this statement of our attitude and aim.  ��������� ��������� But faint as is this denial of this  part of our case it becomes fainter  still���������it dissolves into the thinnest of  thin- air���������when it has to deal with  our'contention-that we and our. allies  are withstanding a power whose aim  is nothing less than the domination  of Europe. (Hear, hear). It is indeed the avowed belief of the leaders  of Gjrinan thought���������I will not say of  the German people, but of those who  for many years past have controlled  German policy���������that such a doruinat-  tion, carrying with it the supremacy  of what they call German culture���������  could happen to the world. Let  me, then, ask for a moment what is  tin's German culture, what is this German spirit of which the Emperor's  armies are at present the missionaries in Belgium, and in ^France?  (Laughter). Mankind owes niuch to  Germany, a very great debt for the  contributions she has made to philosophy, to science, and to the arts..  But," gtnelemen, that which is specifically German in the movement of the  -world-in the last thirty years has  been, on the intellectual side, the development of the doctrine of *he sup-'  ' reme and ultimate prerogative in human affairs of material forces, and, on  the practical side, the taking of the  foremost place in the fabrication and  the multiplication of the machinery of  destruction.  ;   To the men who have adopted thiu  gospel, who believe that power is the  be-all  and  end-all  of the  state,  nat-J  mully a treaty is nothing more than)  a piece of parchment, and all the old-  world  talk  about  the  rights   of  the  weak    and    the  obligations    of  the  strong is only    so much threadbare; i  and nauseating cant.    For one very1  remarkable    feature    of    this    new  school of doctrine is, whatever be its  intellectual or its ethical merits, that  It lias turned out as an actual code  for life  tot be a  very  purblind  philosophy.  -The German culture, the German  spirit, did not save the emperor and  his 'people from delusions and miscalculations as dangerous as they  were absurd in regard to the British  empire. We were believed by these  cultured observers to be the decadent descendants of a people who, by a  combination of luck and of fraud hail  managed to obtain dominion over a  vast quantity of the surface and the  populations of tho globe.  This fortuitous aggregation which  goes by tho name of the British empire, was supposed to be so insecurely founded and so loosely knit together that at the first touch of serious  menace from, without it would fall to  pieces and tumble to the ground. Our  great Dominions were getting heartily  tired of the imperial connection; In-  dia-^it was .notorious to every German  traveller���������was on the verge of open  revolt; and here at heme we, the people of- this United Kingdom, were riven | by dissension so deep and so  fierce that our energies, .whether for  resistance or for attack, would be  completely ��������� paralyzed. Gentlemen,  what a. fantastic dream and what a  rude awakening. (Laughter and  cheers). And in this vast and' grotesque, and yet tragic, miscalculation  is to be found one Qf the-roots���������perhaps the main root���������of the present  war. *~'       *  But let us go one step more.

Meanwhile the merchant shipping of  the the enemy has been hunted from  the seas and our seamen are s^till patiently, or impatiently waiting a chance  to try conclusion with the opposing  fleet.  His majesty's government have since  the war began despatched to the front  already considerably over two hundred thousand men and the amplest  provisions have been made for keeping our army supplied' with all that  is necessary in food, in stores, and in  equipment Tnej will very soon be  reinforced by regular troops from India, from Egypt, and the Mediterranean and in due time by the contingents  which our Domin:ons are furnishing  with such magnificent' patriotism aiid  liberality. We have with us here our  own" gallant Territorials becoming  every day a fitter and a finer force,  eager ?.nd anxious to despond to any  call either at home or abroad that  may be made upon them. But that is  not enough.- . We must do still more.  I have only one word more to say.  What is it,that we can offer to our  recruits? They come to us spontaneously under no kind of compulsion, they come of..their own free will  to meet a national and an imperial  need. Wc presr-nt to them no mater-j  ial inducement in the shape either of  bounty or bribe, and they have to  face the prospect-of a spell of hard  training from which most of the  comforts and all the luxuries that  any. of thorn have been accustomed  to are rigorously banished. But then  when they are fully equipped for  their patriotic task they will have  the. opportunity of" striking a blow���������  it may be even of laying down their  lives���������not to serve the cause of ambition or aggression, but to maintain  the honor and the good faith of our  country, to shield the independence  of free states, to protect against  brute ofrce the principles of civilization, and the liberties of Europe (loud  cheers-.  The   Explanation   of  the   Showers   is  Comparatively Simple  Torrents of rain often follow a big  battle.  History contains innumerable instances, both on land and'sea, and on  more than one occasion' the storm or  showers that followed an engagement  had no small influence upon the life  of nations. ' .  We can hardly have a oett'er example than that recorded In 1588,  when England was threatened by the  Spanish Arnianda. After the encounter with our own fleet it was struck  by a heavy storm, which completed  the-work of our own gallant seamen.  The soldiers who fought so bravely  undfer the leadership of Marlborough  at Blenheim in the year 1704 had to  suffer the misery of successive' downpours after'their...-brilliant victory.  Marlborough was anxious to follow  up" his victory, without delay, but his  men were so worn by the fatigue of  the battle.and the discomforts caused  by heavy' rains that he ���������as unable  to push on for several days.'  _On June 1G, 1815, the British defeated the French at Quatre Bras, and  defeated Napoleon worsted the wily  Blucher at Ligny, both withlnLmeasur-  able distance of Waterloo. The heavy  rains which followed these engagement made the clayey soil almost  Impossible for cavalry manoeuvres at  Waterloo (fought on June 18), and so  crippled the tactics of Napoleon and  greatly assisted those of the Duke of  Wellington. ��������� The victory would have  been gained in any case, but experts are of the" opinion that the rain  was .an ally of some value.  During the early weeks of the siege  of Sebastopol, in 1854, the roar of  cannon and explosion of bombs was  followed, day by day, by heavy downpours of rain, until our men stood in  the trenches knee-deep in mud. This  has also been the case in the present  war. '    /  A terrible gale '^broke over the  Black Sea and caused great disaster  to our transports, and oirthe heels of  this tempest came a heavy, steady  downfall of ��������� rain that brought death  to hundreds of our gallant, fellows.  In yet another instance the heavy  cannonading of a siege brought in its  train a disturbance of the elements.  This was just prior to the fall of  Plevna, in 1877, when_the moisture  of the clouds was turned to snow as  it fell, and, by increasing' the suffering of the besieged, helped to make  Osman-come to the determination to  try a- last chance for freedom.  \ The explanation of the rain is comparatively simple, and has been made  use of to a certain extent for the bene"-  fit of agriculture in various .parts of  the world.  - The atmosphere is laden with, moisture, a concussion caused, by loud "reports or noises wil Ioften burst the  clouds, with the natural result that  the drops of .water fall to t,he earth.  This has been tested ��������� when farmers  have been- groaning over the drought  and scientists" have, so it has been reported, ; induced some rain to fall by  causing cannon to-be. discharged at  altitudes varying with the locality.

The -war would  have happened then if the chancellor  of the exchequer had not gone to the  Mansion House and made a speech;  but thep thought they would wait a  little longer. Mr.'Churchill continued:  "I became responsible for this great  department of the navy, and I have  had to see evory day evidence of the  espionage system which " Germany  maintained in this country. I -have  had evidence put under my eye month  after month of the agents whom they  The Right Hon.

One might say that the same spirit  prasided over its construction. Its  builders planned it on a large - scale  and, as in the case of Versailles, to  outbid Paris. This is the impression  given to the visitor to Bordeaux when  he sees its spacious streets, its immense squares, its enormous buildings and monuments."    _      ���������'.-'  Nevertheless, the ensembio is pleas-  ing, for there are plenty of trees and  plenty of gardens, which lend a countrified air and a pretty tinge of gre-jn  to the' city with its gigantic stone  buildings." In temperament the Bor-  delais are very like the Southerners,  more particularly the people of Marseilles.  They are a pocket-edition of Tar-  tafin.de Tarascon, Alphonse Daudet's  braggart .hero of Southern Franca.  Like their brothers of Marseilles they  must always. be on the move, and,  above all, must be continually boasting of their prowess.  Historically speaking, Bordeaux :s  a very ancient town, the origin of  which is unknown. It made its appearance suddenly under the Romans,,  about 200 A.D., and was then already  a large town.  Tho Romans completely demolished it and reconstructed it in its actual proportions about 400 a.D. Bordeaux was several times under English domination, and traces of its  occupation are still to be found in a  kind of colony Avhich lies quite close  to the city. This- colony, which produces an'excellent wine which is very  well known, is still called "La Colonic  Anglaise."  Bordeaux surrendered (o England  for the last time in 1S14, when Louis  XVIII. was proclaimed King there.  Once before, during tiie Franco-  German war of 1870-71, the French  government was transferred to Bordeaux, where it remained until the  definite signature of peace.  The new capital is about 350 miles  from Paris, and is almost too large  for its 300,000 inhabitants. It has  room for twice or even three times as  many people without in the least inconveniencing the population,  Bordeaux- is the country of the old  wines of France. The grateful warmth  of the old brands of Bordeaux may  be said to dwell in the blood of the  inhabitants, who seem ever striving  to fill with life ami "movement their  immense city without, however, completely succeeding.  Bordeaux seems specially fitted to  cope with the present situation, and  is proud of the honor of being chosen  as chief city of France.  can draw from every quarter of the  globe and feed up steadily to their  full strength until this war is settled in the only way. I come to ask  you for this with great confidence,  because it can quite easily be done as  long as,we continue all of the same  mind.  "I have only one song to sing;  these are days of action rather than  of speech. \You have no need to be  anxious about the results. God has  blessed our arms with unexpected  good fortune. For myself, having  studied this matter with some'attention, I could not have hoped that at  this stage, of the war circumstances  would have been so favorable to the  allied cause.  "We must look to solid foundations  for our real sources of strength, and  even if this battle now proceeding  were to prove as disastrous as it appears to be triumphant,- and even if  other battles were to come, sinister in  consequences, still the British empire,  if its resolution does not'fail, could  finally settle this matter as it chooses.  "So far as the navy is concerned  we cannot fight while the enemy remain in. port. We hope a decision at  sea will be a feature of this war. Our  men who are spending a tireless vigil,  hope that they will have a chance to  settle the question with the German  fleet; and if they do not come out and  fight they^ will oe dug out like rats  in a hole. ,     '  "' "Under the shield of our navy you  can raise an army in this country  who will settle the war.

They had heard of the German  ambassador in the United States indulging in some vague talk of peace,  but peace, ought not to be on the lips  of those .who were invading the territory of their neighbors, and who  were carrying fire and sword through  peaceful  provinces.
